Book Review: The Tale of Tango by Paul Hohman

The Tale of Tango
By Paul E.Hohman
Publisher: XlibrisUS
Published: Feb. 20, 2014

Amazon Synopsis:

Far, far away, in a Midwestern town in late winter, a wonderful event was happening in a small factory. As the cold wind blew across the flat, open land, a brand-new airplane named Tango was being fitted with its identification number plate. This was a big event for the little airplane because it was the final step before it was allowed to fly. This particular plane’s identification number, or ID for short, was 1228, its date of manufacture. The little plane was checked, inspected, and labeled as Airworthy. He was ready to take to the skies.

My Thoughts:

This is a very informative story about a small airplane that has several different owners in his long life as a plane owned by weekend flyers, pilots in training, new pilots and stunt pilots. Tango has the opportunity to see so many different areas of the country. He learns to appreciate all his different experiences.

The Tale of Tango was an enjoyable book for children and adults to enjoy together. There were alternating pages of pictures and text. The pages with text were full pages so they may be a bit daunting for newer readers.

There was a lot of interesting information about aviation for readers in the story. The explanations were simply given and easily understood. This is a great book for helping children learn more about flying and some of the vocabulary that goes along with it.

I thought that The Tale of Tango was an excellently written book for children and adults to share. I gave it a rating of 5 stars out of 5.

Thank you to the author who provided a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion is not required. All thoughts are my own.

  1. So very delightful!

    As a long time passionate professional pilot who relishes the magic of being one with her aircraft, I must say this book speaks to my heart. It’s all about not being afraid to take off into the wild blue yonder of life- with all its mysterious and magnificent uncertainties and unknowns. The Tale of Tango gives us permission to trust life; to stretch our wings while we muster up the courage to fly high enough to reach our potential.

    A must read for kids of all ages (includes valuable life lessons that transcend the cockpit!).
